Founded in 2013 by the experienced Head Coach Fernando Silva, who had previously formed Reading Futsal Club and coached at Gloucester Futsal Club, the club prides itself on youth development from Reading and the surrounding area.
The club has an excellent track record of producing young exciting futsal players, with seven U17 players all making significant contributions to finishing Runners Up in 2017-18 of Division 2 Midlands. The adult team, which will be a young exciting team, will playing in the National Futsal League in the forthcoming season (2019/20).
The club is proud that many of the players are still playing futsal with the club or playing where their further education or work took them on their life journey. The youth section grows every year, reflecting the growing status of futsal. The club is growing organically, to ensure it does not run before it can walk, and building a solid foundation with a youth set up across all age groups under the supervision of the Head Coach and specialist skills coaches.
This season we have a Women’s Team, run by Sarah Thompson, that will help the club continue to try and provide opportunities for everyone that wants to play futsal to experience the beautiful game. We are excited about the future of futsal in Reading as we continue to develop our relationships with schools, colleges, local football teams and community groups.
Reading Royals Futsal Club is growing with the community for the community. As we say at the club: Vamos!
